The Major Shopping Centre in Slovenia Launches Payment for Goods with Crypto Currencies
Slovenia is moving fast in the direction of mass adoption of the crypto currency. Recently, local media outlets have announced the introduction of a crypto-currency payment system in the major shopping centre of the capital.
BTC City Ljubljana, located in the city of Ljubljana, launches a pilot project for goods payment with crypto currencies. Thus, 150 buyers of the centre will be able to pay for purchases in digital currencies in more than 500 stores. As mentioned by the local TV channel 24 Ur, goods available for buying through crypto currencies start with the category of clothing and end with electronics.
Interestingly, bitcoin (BTC) has nothing to do with the name of one of the largest shopping complexes in Europe. The centre was founded in 1950 and is named Blagovno Transportni Centre or abbreviated as BTC.
As previously reported in the media, Slovenia was noted as a crypto-friendly country. By the beginning of the first quarter of 2018, the shopping centre had teamed up with Eligma, a start-up company that conducts transactions based on crypto currencies through the Elipay application.
With more than 500 stores, BTC City Ljubljana intends to become the world’s largest centre for accepting digital assets as payments. Slovenia continues to invest in its future wishing to create the Bitcoin City as soon as possible. The project received praise from the minister Miroslav Cerar and the State Secretary Tadej Slapnik, who has recently visited Ljubljana.
